Great day!!!!
Josephine_K, Jun 2022
Fernando was super friendly and helpful. Great tour using the amazing cable car system. For 8dollars you can’t beat it.
Best tour to begin La Paz
Jaeyup_J, Jun 2022
Fernando was the most qualified guide for this tour. Double majored in tourism and mechanical engineering, he actually worked for My Teleferico for several years! If your interested in not only La Paz but also the cablecar system, he is the one to find! The only one tour I strongly recommend to do in La Paz
We really appreciated the...

We really appreciated the inside knowledge Ferdinand brought to our small group. He tells you about the regular tourist stuff but if you ask questions about socio-economic and political issues he gives you a lot of insight. The views are amazing and it is a great warm up to experiencing LaPaz.
Great views, great guide
Thea_C, May 2022
Fernando provided a great mix of culture and history, while also answering questions. Touring the city by cable car has a lot of advantages: fast, amazing views, not exerting yourself much at high altitude, and no issues with motion sickness from the windy roads.
The best choice to see La Paz

Maria was an excellent guide and very passionate about indigenous Bolivians. Enough said - if you insist on writing a review of at least 100 characters then don't ask me again!

This was a fantastic tour for gaining an overview of the cities of La Paz and El Alto with plenty of time to take photos and gain some knowledge from the local guide.

I had been looking forward to this for a long time and was not disappointed. Our guide was excellent, very interesting lady also works as an artist and looks after stray dogs. She told us a lot about the Teleférico, La Paz and El Alto. ¡Muchísimas gracias por una experiencia estupenda!

Deborah M, Mar 2018
This tour was the best thing we did in LaPaz! Valeria was a wonderful guide, full of enthusiasm about showing us her home city, and totally engaged in answering all of our questions about the social and political situation and history of the city and nation. I am normally terrified of heights, but the cable cars are so comfortable, and quiet and the views so spectacular that I was able to relax and enjoy the experience. The visit to the witches market was great too - and something difficult to understsnd or appreciate without a guide. Val helped us to understand the cultural importance of the ceremonies, and how the Indigenous practices live on in modern Bolivian lives. Highly recommend this tour!

MICHAEL S, Feb 2018
I was lucky enough to have Valerie as a guide. She spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about Bolivia's history, culture and traditions. Valerie guided us safely through the cable car stations, on and off taxis and minibuses between stations and cable car lines.She was able to answer all our questions comprehensively. She also explained clearly about the transport protest that was happening in La Paz today. I would definitely recommend this company for anyone wanting to explore the city by cable car, and Valerie in particular as a guide.
